You need to display your image as a block-level element:

<img style="margin-left: auto;margin-right: auto;display:block" alt="" src="images/purchase.jpg">

Open in new window

The auto margins only work on blocks, and by default, an image is inline.

hummm, you cleared my mind with your explanation. Thanks a lot Chris.

let me ask you that.

Imagine that I have some text and I'd like to have my image on the left and the text on its right in my div, What should I do ?

In that case, you'd need to float your image:

<img style='float:left;' src='...'>

In your page, this probably wouldn't work as it is, because the text content is in a different DIV.

Here's a good intro into floats:
